VSHN.timer #213: The Latest and Greatest DevOps Tools

15. Jan 2024

Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.

This week we’re going to talk about some noteworthy DevOps tools we’ve recently come across.

1. Are you a BorgBackup user? Then check BorgWarehouse out: it’s a fast and modern WebUI for a BorgBackup’s central repository server.


2. PipeCD is a GitOps style continuous delivery platform that provides consistent deployment and operations experience for any application.


3. 🧐 Monokle streamlines the process of creating, analyzing, and deploying Kubernetes configurations by providing a unified visual tool for authoring YAML manifests, validating policies, and managing live clusters.


4. Great news! After four months of work, the first stable release of OpenTofu, a community-driven open source fork of Terraform, has just been released.


5. This Dockerfile is a fullstack server that includes a backend, a database and a UI, all in a single file starting with a shebang. Let me repeat: a Dockerfile with a shebang. What? Yup, what you just heard.


Do you shebang your Dockerfiles? Do you back your YAML up? Would you like to share any DevOps tips and tricks with our audience? Get in touch with us, and see you next week for another edition of VSHN.timer.
